Description: During the Middle Ages in Europe, water transport was of vital importance, on inland waterways, along the coast and overseas. Archaeological discoveries made over the last few years are providing new insights into medieval ships and shipping. The great expansion in shipping activity during the medieval period was matched by rapid developments in technology and accompanied by the growth of seaports. This comprehensive new synthesis examines the maritime scene from a British perspective, and sets the evidence provided by the material remains into its social and economic context.
